The Human Family Tree
To say that we are all the same just flies in the face of the very data that is cited. Ashley, you contradicted yourself when you talked about environmentally induced changes to the different branches of the human family. It's obvious just on a cursory examination that race is real and it matters. It matters in medicne, it matters in what kind of society you want to live in, it matters in temperament, it matters in forensic anthropology. When you talk about racial differences, you are dealing with different groups taken as a whole. Anecdotal stories about this person or that person not representative of the group as a whole proves nothing. Give me the name of any scientist who is willing to go on record as saying these things are not true. Putting someone whose parents came from Ghana in the same group as caucasian Europeans is silly. You can disagree with that, but it sounds like it came right out of the non-scientific, politically correct Southern Poverty Law Center. It's NUTSO!!
Just watched Family Tree Revealed on NatGeo and it is completely dead on. 'Some' assumptions must be made, but science can't be trumped by theory or bind faith/belief. I have been studying and pondering these points since I was very young. I came to the identical conclusions, but without any scientific evidence. For instance, we all originated from the SAME place, but due to environment, geography, and climate caused changes in our skin color, facial structure, language, etc. John Brawthen (below) in addition to abysmal grammar is the type of ignorance that is holding back the human race and keeping us in constant WAR. We are all the SAME. I know many hate to hear that, but facts don't lie. The TRUTH is a....you know the rest. WAKE UP EVERYBODY!!!!
WHAT?? You doubt the integrity of what you see on TV? DNA tracking has proven to be a credible, scientifically accepted method of identifying individuals for numerous reasons. Criminal evidence, family backgrounds, tracing population migrations among aboriginal people, just to name a few. It's not intended to prove "Fairy-Tales" or to propagandize anything. John, your grammar is abysmal.
@G WilsonMaybe English isn't his first language? LOL. I thought the show was fascinating. I'd love to do the genetic test, but we're saving up to take our daughter to Disney World.
The informon about human race was grossly inaccurate. In fact much of what was presented was quite silly in fact. This show was so misleading, it was obviously intended to propaganda.
